Kontos Cellars, 2008 LVLL Malbec

One of the most extracted Malbecs I’ve tasted. Dark Purplish color. Intense nose of wild berries (huckleberry and blackberry) with aromas of roast coffee crushed roses and a hint of violet. The flavors are dense, but not overpowering, building up on the back palate with undertones of minerals, bittersweet chocolate and coffee grounds. There is a plumy “sweet spot” in the middle, followed by extracts squeezing out into a ripe chewy tannin finish, dusted with white pepper. - Rand Sealey
